MediaWiki version:


cleanupUsersWithNoId.php is a maintenance script that cleans up tables that have valid usernames with no user ID. It should once be run in wikis that contain imported revisions or global blocks via the CentralAuth extension.


Option Description Required?
--prefix Interwiki prefix to apply to the usernames. This is a required parameter. Required
--table Only clean up this table. The name of one single table can be provided here. If not provided, all affected tables will be cleaned up. These are: revision, archive, logging, image, oldimage, filearchive, ipblocks and recentchanges. Optional
--assign Assign edits to existing local users if they exist. Optional


php maintenance/cleanupUsersWithNoId.php --prefix [ --table| --assign ]

This will only clean up the revision table.

Whenever the script runs, it makes a note in the database and will not run again. If you want to run the script again, run the command with the --force option.
